Surprise wedding parade greets couple who had to cancel plans

'Better than the wedding we planned'


Nathan Andersen and Alison Kennedy could've never imagined their wedding plans would be canceled due to a pandemic. But that is the reality.

However, although social distancing guidelines prevented the couple from gathering with their loved ones, it couldn't keep them completely away.

With the help of the Neola Volunteer Fire Department, the place where Nathan and Alison met, the couple left their intimate ceremony and rode into a surprise wedding parade on a fire truck.

Those who would’ve been guests lined the streets, cheering loudly and holding signs.

It wasn’t the wedding they planned for, but it was a day they’ll never forget.

The newlyweds even had the opportunity to share one of the most special moments of any wedding day, their first dance, with all their favorite people in the middle of the road.

"Breathtaking. Tears and breathtaking," said Andersen.

"Really there's no words that can express how awesome this is. We could never thank everyone enough. This is amazing," said Kennedy.
